Becalmed..Pastel..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews



Believe it not, I always thought sunset paintings were a bit 'cheesy' and I stayed well clear of doing any. I guess I have a had a change of heart in the last week or so.

This was an old demo and was trees originally. Yep..TREES!

I decided to just use a piece of foam to smudge the trees away enough for me to try doing the seascape you now see. I liked all my original colors, so wanted to take advantage of that.

                                  Here is the finished result.. I hope you like it.

                            This image is on Sennelier sanded paper unframed. 

                                                        13" x 19"

                                                   $295 plus S/H

Garden Gaiety..Watercolor.,.Texas Artist..Rae Andrews



A loose and spontaneous watercolor, this one was great fun to paint.

I did not pre-draw anything. I just found shapes onto which to build my flowers after a loose throw of paint.

I am always telling my students to leave the whites of the paper showing through, and to be aware of the shapes they make as well, no two white shapes should be the same size and importance.

If the design is a good one, the painting should be successfully turned in most directions and still look okay.

Try it, this way of painting is very freeing..

                                           This image is 15" x 22" unframed.

                                                           $350 plus S/H

Amazing Grace..Watercolor..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews



This is a large watercolor on Arches cold press paper.

It captures the feeling I had while walking in a wonderful area in France a few weeks ago, a hidden lagoon with reflections ..I scrambled through the dense forest to get to this place and boy oh boy, what a reward!landscape, reflections, trees, forest, water, bold colors, texas artist rae andrews, fine art prints, fine art workshops

Just captivating and this scene stayed has with me wanting to be painted for weeks. I took many photos of this area but as usual photos cannot completely give the same awesome feeling one gets when they are actually there looking at the scene.

For this reason I did this mostly from memory. I used my photos to 'bounce' but in the end, the scene is really out of my memory/feeling reserve.

I also embellished my colors a lot as France is so GREEN, and it's overwhelming to me in a painting. Hence my use of some warm accents, which truthfully were not there at all.

Hope you like this one, it was a fun image to paint and I know I will be painting more from this area in the future.

                                                                    18" x 24" (unframed)
                                                                          $450 plus S/H
